Caritas Athens, a partner of CRS, runs a soup kitchen and also provides clothes, vouchers for shelter and information for passing refugees and economic migrants. Afghan families eat a warm meal after arriving to the port in Athens earlier that morning.
This year, thousands have fled countries in northern Africa and the Middle East seeking asylum in different parts of Europe. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Caritas are scaling up their humanitarian relief efforts to address these growing needs in Serbia, Macedonia and Greece. This is part of the Balkan Refugees - Migrants Response project.
